Shiray Tane

Former Waikato touch representative, Tane was introduced to sevens rugby through the Go4Gold programme three years ago. The 21-year old utility back doesn't have to look far for advice on sevens as she is the partner of All Black Sevens squad member Gilles Kaka. She would be lost without her favourite canine companions Champ and Compton.
